Beyond the football match

Thanks to the work of AC Milan Group, we provide our methodological and sporting know-how to promote social inclusion experiences in Italy and world-wide.

Among AC Milan Group’s most important goals there are the spreading and promotion of football all over the world, to give, especially to the youngest, the most authentic values of football: loyalty, respect, teamwork and fun. 

Aims and methodology

AC Milan Academy is the set of projects and initiatives dedicated to the Under 18 World.

The network of over 100 Soccer Schools affiliated in Italy and abroad are part of AC Milan Academy, AC Milan Junior Camp, the Tribuna Giovani at San Siro Stadium and all the events dedicated to children and young people, including AC Milan Cup, Sunday Camps, AC Milan School Cup and AC Milan Experience.

AC Milan Academy aims at generating sports culture and inclusion through Sport, focusing on children’s well-being during all stages of growth, both with activities on the pitch and as a young supporter.

The key element is AC Milan Integrated Method. This method is the outcome of years of experience in managing young players and is based on several elements, including the teaching of technical-tactical, athletic and relational elements of football through a global vision.

The method integrates these areas in an effective way and it involves all the subjects taking part in children’s educational path, ie families, coaches and sports managers. All the coaches involved in AC Milan Academy’s activities follow a specific training with AC Milan Training School.

The Integrated Method is studied and adopted by AC Milan Youth Sector and it complies with the specificities and needs of the various sports organizations - football schools, camps etc. - with which AC Milan Academy works.
